Drug Testing Your Workforce
There are several reasons why an employer may decide to test for drugs in their workforce. These reasons range from an emphasis on quality control, employee well being, health and safety legislation through to reducing risks at work or to identify an employee suspected of drug use after an incident at work. Employee Drug Testing is also commonly used during pre employment screening to ensure that a new employee is safe to work within a given environment.
To test employees for drugs however requires written employee consent. Employee consent should normally be given when the employer has grounds for testing you under a full contractual occupational health and safety policy. This policy should be set out in an employee contract of employment or in the company handbook.
An employer should limit testing to the employees that need to be tested to deal with the risk, unless for legal reasons the entire workforce requires testing. If an employer wishes to carry out random drugs tests of a selection of its workforce through random drug testing, then tests should be genuinely random. It's potentially discriminatory to single out particular employees for testing unless this is justified by the nature of their jobs or reasons for their selection over other employees.
Selecting employees for random drug testing is a sensitive matter and employers are recommended to have a written policy on this for protection if the testing lead to a legal dispute in the future. Employee Drug Testing should respect privacy, for example be carried out by a member of the same sex and take place with an witness expert present. Forensic Resources can provide expert witness and testing service for all forms of employee drug testing.
Employees can't be made to participate in a drugs test, but if employees refuse to participate in a drug test when the employer has good grounds for testing the employee under a proper occupational health and safety policy - the employee in questions may face disciplinary action, including being sacked.
Forensic Resources offer the following employee drug testing services:
